    Not nearly as subversive or exhilaratingly rude as 2005’s Wedding Crashers (already a cringe-comedy classic), this similar romp takes the earlier movie’s best joke—Isla Fisher’s secretly wild party girl—and turns it into the main course. Brocifero...

This is the perfect place to stop in and see a movie by yourself or on a date. The beer selection is great at the bar and the best part is, you don't even have to see a film to hang out. The bar (and concession stand) is open to moviegoers and the public alike. If you're a film buff you can try their trivia nights—they don't disappoint.

I live down the street from the Logan Theatre, and it's a fabulous thing to have nearby. Matinees go for $6.50, makes for a perfect way to waste away your hungover Sunday at the cinema. There's also a bar with a solid variety of drinks, so you don't even have to be sober for the flick.

I love Logan Theatre. This throwback movie theater has everything you want in an old venue, except it's also clean, inviting and in working order! I love all the old movie posters and art on the walls. You can order drinks at the bar before the feature film too. I'd also recommend the theater's movie trivia night, Tuesdays at 8pm. It gets packed early, but it's so much fun. The host is great, the questions are tricky, and everyone has a good time. Great crowd! Oh, and there's typically an old film screening in the background during trivia too. So much fun!
